Vex in the Boat

Recommended Posts

I've heard a few of you talk about mounting your vex in the boat this spring. Are you mounting it on the back with the rest of the transducers? I was thinking of mounting it on my trolling motor, but the more I think about it, I may want to see its readings when I don't have the trolling motor down. Also I've heard about a different transducer for the vex, is that something made specifically for the boat?

ps... dropping the boat off to get it tuned up for open water this morning smile.gif

In my case I am mounting one on the trolling motor and one the rear of the boat. As for the trasducer, you will want to get the high speed kit. It comes with everything you need to mount it on the rear of your boat. I think that is where you will want it, because you will want to use it while you are using your big motor.ScottS

My new rig will have a lowrance on the bow with the transducer running thru my minn kota that has the new universal sonar. They are putting a vexilar bracket on a johnny ray swivel on my console. It will be set up with a high speed transducer off the rear off the boat. GOOD FISHING

I have the high speed transducer mounted on the transome....And I have my ice ducer in the boat for when I am fishing really finicky fish over the deeper water.

The ice ducer also works at trolling speeds, so I pretty much have a portable transducer.

That's how I've done it for years and it works good.

Well I use the Vex right now with just the Ice ducer in the boat. I simply place the puck on the floor back by my bilge(with a little water ofcourse) and I get perfect readings as if I had mounted a boat ducer. If I am jigging I just drop her over the side so I can see my lure and any fish coming off the bottom.

    • WinnerDinner, what do you fish for there In Ireland?  
    • Well there's that! 👍  
    • Speaking of lures I remembered something... Recently I have been trying to understand how to fish at night, was never really much of a fan before. Don’t overload yourself with tackle when fishing at night. Use a smaller tackle box and make use of two or three separate, small containers for all the necessary items like hooks, weights, small bait etc. Night-fishing success means not using bright lights and being very quiet. I feel in love with my new glow in the dark fishing lure, it is so underrated, there are quite a lot of these glow in the dark lures at places like Amazon and such. According to veteran fly-fishermen trout that are all but impossible to catch during the day will be more likely to hit at night. Why? Because these fish are nocturnal feeders. They venture out from under the logs and out of the deeper holes to feed in the shallows. Of course, when you’re seeking trout or other shallow feeders at night you’ll have to take extra precautions to stay safe. So far I've been doing good with my night fishing adventures.
    • My "BROWNING STRIKE FORCE SUB MICRO" was a dream. It really stands out for its exceptional daylight clarity and amazing battery life. The images this game camera can capture put most 12MP cameras to shame. It also uses power very efficiently, even with heavy use of video – especially if you install a set of lithium batteries.  You can expect several months’ use out of them which is even more impressive when you consider that it runs on six AAs, instead of the more common eight.
    • They only have 2 options in life: 1 - get hunted. 2 - get ran over.
    • Crazy thing just happened to me while fishing off my dock... Was throwing a topwater, not paying attention, and SPLASH, I set the hook and nothing there. As I was reeling in to try that spot again, I heard something in the big pine next to the dock, but didn't think anything of it. Recasted and heard something again, turned my headlight on in time to see an owl heading to and then kinda hovering over my lure...  I thought that was weird... A couple casts later I hooked a small bass.... Then I lift it out of the water and as I'm reaching for it, the crazy owl swoops down and about hit me as it tried to nab my bass!!! Holy $#!+ I said out loud and decided to go up the hill before I got attacked. But not until I got pics and videos of the brave bird.  Last summer I had a very similar up close encounter with a great blue heron and a crappie, right at dusk with a heavy fog coming in... Not sure which one surprised me more!!
